This lovely "oval" shaped blue semi precious gemstone Larimar designer cabochon is 42 mm by 25 mm and 8 mm thick.
Larimar is a rare blue form of the mineral Pectolite, a sodium calcium silicate mineral. It is a natural stone occurring in this rare color in only one place in the world, in the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean Sea.
Larimar occurs as an aggregate of needle like radiating crystals or fibers grown together in a solid mass, and when cut it reflects those growths in sprays, swirls and orbs. The blue color is caused by copper inclusions.
Larimar cabochons are soft and the color can fade in prolonged sunlight. Because of its softness and natural inclusions, the cabochon stones are rarely clean, but rather contain undercutting, chattering, fracture lines and surface flaws.
Metaphysical Properties: Larimar is said to encourage communication. It is considered a powerful healer and is said to help those with anxieties and phobias.
Cabochons are stones cut for jewelry and are measured in mm. One inch is equal to about 25 mm.
